Mdt stands for multi disciplinary team. So there will be the surgeon who did the biopsy, the radiology person who may have taken some images before the biopsy was done, the pathologist who looked at the sample and various other people. It is pretty standard that all lumps and bumps that are excised are discussed in an mdt, the discussions range from 'this one was completely benign, we will call mrs smith and reassure her' to 'we need to do something about this' and the team then makes a plan of what to do next.
So basically, being discussed in an mdt doesn't mean anything bad, just means you're getting the best care
